Dog Days Of Summer

Now that we are in the final month of summer we want to share some of our Summer  2012  favorites and to hear some of yours!

Books:  We have been lucky enough to find some time to tuck into a few good ones this summer and these two are standouts. Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter is a really well written novel set in Italy in 1962 and modern day Hollywood.  The backdrop is the making of Liz and Dick’s Cleopatra. It’s incredibly descriptive, beautiful and makes you feel like you are there.  LOVED!!!  Another great read is Gone Girl by Carolyn Flynn.  It’s a thriller (not our usual fare) that unfolds in such a unique way that you can’t put it down.  Can’t tell you any more but trust us on these two! 

Movies:  We loved “The Way” which was written and directed by Emilio Estevez. Came across this beautiful film by accident and have been recommending it all summer!  Another one we liked is a documentary called “Picture Me,” which is a not so glamorous look at the working conditions inside the modeling industry, made by model Sara Ziff and her boyfriend, director Ole Schell.

Skincare:  At TDM, we are always on the lookout for great skincare products without all the nasties.  Sunscreen is a particularly difficult category because of the ever-changing information on what is safe and effective, but we are loving our Devita sunscreen this summer.  It has a combo of titanium and (non-micronized) zinc in a refreshingly clean base with lots of good botanicals.  The best part is that it feels great on our skin and provides solid protection.  We are also interested in a line called Acure Organics.  This is one of the cleanest lines we have come across and the chocolate mint lip balm is the bomb. Seriously. We love it.   

Okay, now tell us your favorites of the summer- or whenever (please!)
